Upgrading to latest CVS snapshow (5.2.6-dev) does NOT solve the problem. See scripts in bug report, path is still repeated at end of PHP_SELF value.

What SAPI are you using? CGI or something else?
 [2007-11-26 11:46 UTC]
I missed the phpinfo() url. And it's slow as hell so pasting the relevant info here: Server API 	CGI/FastCGI

Dmitry, something missed in fixing this?

Yeah server is slow as hell. Seems to be the combination of PHP 32 bit on a 64 bit Windows, HTML files parse at normal speed.

Server is Xitami 2.5c2 (32 bit)

Problem looks a bit like bug 43030 (, only now just the path is duplicated. That bug concerns Windows 2003, which uses roughly the same kernel as XP 64 bit, so they might be related.

Hope this helps.

(PS: unrelated, but are there plans to release 64 bit Windows binaries in the future?)

Installed the snapshot, but bug still persists.

One note however: Server is no longer running XP Pro 64bit.
It is now running win2k again (as XP64 + PHP was too slow).

Can you try it using Apache instead of Xitami?
